Located close to Carlow, the village has rapidly expanded in size since the 1960s, when it comprised just a few houses around the church. This was built in the 1680s (according to an inscription on a stone in the wall) and originally had a thatched roof.

Public transport

During the week the village is served by JJ Kavanagh and Sons Abbeyleix/Portlaoise-Athy-Carlow bus route with two daily journeys each way. Bus Éireann route 73 from Waterford to Athlone passes through the village but does not stop there. Rail services may be accessed at Carlow railway station.
